We drank this with John's cold smoked salmon and a green salad with Kirsten's berry dressing. Excellent combination! It was light enough to have with fish, smooth. Bottle says toasty vanilla from French oak aging, rose petal and red cherry flavors. (Can't remember)
A lovely Russian River Pinot, with all the great typicity you've come to expect from this AVA - Dark, medium/full bodied with a nose of plum, cherry, spice, cinnamon, cola and vanilla, nice structure and balance, interesting, sour, sweet on the palate with very good length, tasty! (90 Points).
Taste sweet, fruity, some oak, acidity on front end that faded during the meal. More like a syrah pinot combo. OK with tomato Alfredo sauce, but not paired well wih blackened yellowtail. May need more aging. Monterrey Cannery Restaraunt in Oceanside, CA- $10 / glass.
